    Hi !

    This is the 1963 pattern Bundeswehr-Fallmesser, or, -Kappmesser.
    It replaced the 1956 pattern gravity knife and it´s a copy of the 2nd pattern, (take-down version), gravity knife of the Wehrmacht-Luftwaffe.

    makers:

    WMF - Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik
    Carl Eickhorn, Solingen
    OFW - Otto Förster, Witzhelden

    I have a German Bundeswehr gravity knife 1963 pattern with OFW on the blade. It would be perfect except when the blade is fully extended there is a small but noticeable wobble to it. However, if I retract the blade just tiny bit the blade is solid. The obvious question is....can this be fixed? If you have any ideas please respond as well to my email . Your help is greatly appreciated. Tom

    Hi, Tom !

    Don´t worry ´bout that !

    If the blade doesn´t wobble, somethin´ probably isn´t that OK !

    Cheers,
    R.
